WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen white CR-V, with dog (update: found!) inside

9:49 AM: Just got this by phone – please help watch for this stolen car, whose owner tells us her senior dog was inside. The car is a white 2010 Honda CR-V, stolen just before 8 this morning from an alley between 55th and 56th SW, off Alki Avenue SW. \

The dog is a 14-year-old Pomeranian/Chihuahua, black with a pink harness, chipped, with tags that have her phone number. If you see the car, call 911; if you find her dog, 206-330-5057.

1:01 PM: We got word that Dottie the dog has been found, in Burien. No word yet on the vehicle’s status.

2:20 PM: Peggy, Dottie’s person, says the car hasn’t been found yet. Dottie, meantime, is home and doing OK.

    Hopefully they can share a photo of the dog soon – I would imagine once the thief discovers the dog, they’ll let it out of the car. Hope they find both the dog and car soon.

    Here’s a link to the post on social media for an image of the dog. https://www.facebook.com/groups/402908343115237/permalink/4730215970384431/

    This is my elderly neighbor. She is so sweet. Lives alone with her two dogs and just wants her baby back.

      I hope it’s found safe and sound. She was going to have someone send a photo but it hasn’t arrived yet …

    That’s just sad.

    horribly sad. i was on a dog walk this morning in my neighborhood (before returning and reading this,) and noticed another person’s car idling with no one inside. it seemed odd to me. given the amount of mailbox theft and theft off people’s porches, i wouldn’t give anyone any other opportunity to steal anything, especially as we near the holidays and people get desperate.i hope this dog is found. the car can be replaced, if necessary. the love for an animal, not.

    Just got word from the lost dogs of king county page that the dog has been found. No details yet. 

    • WSB December 1, 2020 (1:00 pm)

      Yes, we got word a while ago that the dog was found in Burien, just got back to the desk and. updating.

        Yay! I didn’t read far enough down the post. SO happy Dottie got back home okay. I won’t have her forever, but having her stolen (by thieves) would rip my heart out.

    Can Dottie pick the creep out in a line-up? Speak Dottie! Speak! Seriously though, glad the culprit didn’t harm the little darling, and she is at home safe with her sweet owner. Give the little baby a hug from all of us.
